Vatapa - Brazilian Shrimp Stew #seafood #Brazil #bahia

For letter V, I had two choices for Brazilian cuisine, Vatapa and Virado de Paulista. People from the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo refer to themselves as Paulistas and the recipe translated means Facing Paulista. It’s a common breakfast plate in Sao Paulo.…
Since most of the other foods I am presenting this week comes from the Bahia region, I decided to stick with the theme and do this much simpler recipe from Bahia, the region populated by African slave descendants. The use of nuts and dried shrimp in this recipe tell their African roots.

While I love Brazilian food, I usually focus on the spicier Bahia coast cuisine. The state of Bahia is located on Brazil’s northeastern coast and is populated by descendants of African slaves and Haitian emigres, who came to work in the coconut groves,…

This is the best supermarket in the NYC for Latin American food products - every type of Peruvian pepper paste you can imagine. A large variety of cremas and cheeses from all over Latin America including Ecuadorian Cayembe, my fave. Dried blue corn for making Peruvian Chica Morado or Mazamorra, plantain flour, plantain leaves, lucuma, blue corn tortillas. large selection of dried and fresh chiles and a great produce section. Gallina - hard fowl and the list goes on. Any ingredient you need for Latin cooking can be found here

This restaurant is the kind of place you want to come back to again and again. With a small bar and only about 28 seats, it has a neighborhood feel to it. If I lived in the area, it's definitely a place I would stop by on my way home from work for a quick beer and pleasant conversation with locals. The food is amazing. Portion size is perfect. Ample, but not oversized like many American eating establishments. Traditional Columbian food - the shrimp ceviche is definitely a must and they have a wide selection of South and Central American beers - Tona, a Nicaraguan lager was so refreshing on a hot summer day. It's bright and crisp, with no bitterness at all. Of course, being a Columbian restaurant, they also have lots of coffee based drinks and to end your meal, the tres leches cake is perfect - not too sweet and not too wet, it's the best version I've ever had.
